This is really heartbreaking. According to a report, suspected
Fulani herdsmen attacked and almost killed a young pregnant
woman in Yogbo town Makurdi, Benue state capital on Sunday
The woman was said to be with her husband when the
attacked happened as he escaped when they started shooting.
According to Benjamin Amaechi, the attackers used used sticks to
pierce through her private part to kill the unborn child. They also
pulled out the child and her womb after which they beat her and
left her to die.
When soldiers went to pick her corpse upon her husband’s report,
it was discovered that she’s still alive and she was rushed to
Bishop Murray Hospital for treatment.
